    Live TV and Recorded TV is dilated and cropped vertically.

    When MCE2005 has boot, all is fine
    But after using applications or watching WMV, image of live TV is too high
    and the bottom of image is missing.

    I use Nvida Decoder with a 6600 card.

    The terminal is connected with a S-video cable in PAL format.

    Ah, that old problem. The TV is dialated probably because it has been
    watched too much or its having a baby TV. In either case when you kick
    the computer with a boot on the TV sees it, the TV gets scared and and
    acts all fine, but then the computer talks to it and it forgets it was
    scared and starts playing around again.

    Check your settings for the video card from regular windows.

    I have this same problem. I use a quite modern Philips Widescreen TV. I did
    a complete reinstall of my HTPC. With the old install I had no problem. With
    the new install I have also this problem. It is very easy to reproduce: Watch
    live TV, then watch recorded TV for a few seconds and then switch to live TV
    again and voila: the image is stretched in vertical direction, missing the
    bottom part.

    It seems strange to me that it has something to do with my TV set, because I
    see no flickering or anything...

    Has somebody a solution to this problem???

    Kind regards.
